Know Playa

Playa Games has been an established developer and operator of browser-based and mobile games in the German market since 2009. At our Hamburg headquarters, with a magnificent view of the Binnenalster, we passionately create and develop new ideas daily for our award-winning MMORPG Shakes & Fidget and for future games.

In addition, we take care of the huge community that has grown around Shakes & Fidget over the years. On our various social media channels, we provide important news, announce exciting Let's Play events, hold contests, supply players with codes, and much more.
